Issue - "Select a Language" phrase 3 Weeks, 3 Days ago
Karma: 0  
Hi guys,
PHP 7.4.33 & 8.1.13 + Joomla 4.2.6 + Joomla Translate Commerce 6.1.1
- Component > Settings > Website Main Language: the default language which must coincide with the default Joomla Frontend Language
- Module > Language List: I have to add also the default language in this list

Now, the "dropdown" is shown with a "Select a Language" phrase at the top.

Considering that:
A - When the module show "Select a Language", a language is yet selected, it is the default one.
B - The default language is also listed when the dropdown is opened.
C - to click on "Select a Language" is the same as to click on the default language.

Practically, "the default language" is the "select a language". It has no sense to show the "Select a Language" option and it is not user friendly for site users.

Joomla 4 multilingual standard module selector shows only the languages available, there is no any "Select a Language" phrase option (this is true also for other translators).

The Module dropdown should always show the flag/language word of the current language (also the default one) and should never show the "Select a Language" phrase.
If necessary, the default language of the site could be highlighted by simply writing it in bold within the list (for example). Just it.

From my point of view, this is the biggest Joomla Translate Module limit.
Please, Can you add this "fixing" into your roadmap for next release ?
